About ALS

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative condition that affects the muscles and their movements. It is an incurable and rapidly progressive condition, but there are treatment options available, including infusion therapy, to help those who have been diagnosed. ALS is commonly also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after the baseball player who was diagnosed with the condition in the 1930s.
